This morning I copied across Kubuntu's sources.list onto a Debian etch
system, did an apt-get update and tried to migrate to Ubuntu dapper:

hendry at khanos:~$ sudo apt-get install ubuntu-base ubuntu-minimal libc6-i686
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  libc6-i686: PreDepends: libc6 (= 2.3.6-0ubuntu15) but 2.3.6-3 is to be installed
E: Broken packages

I guess I could force it. Is there another way I haven't thought of?

Best wishes,
